ABOUT KEITH BURNSTEIN
Keith Burnstein is a New Orleans based singer-songwriter, pianist, and film composer who pens timeless tunes to live by. His is a new American songbook, one that draws as much from Tin Pan Alley as it does from modern geniuses like Jeff Tweedy, Dr. John, and Amon Tobin. “The songs, while instantly familiar, remain very much their own creations” writes Secret Sound Shop, “combining the bedroom intimacy of a singer-songwriter” (Seven Days VT) with the rich harmonic palette of jazz, contemporary classical, and world music.
ABOUT BAUHAUS SPIRIT: 100 YEARS OF BAUHAUS
In conjunction with the exhibition An Ideal Unity: The Bauhaus & Beyond, NOMA will screen Bauhaus Spirit: 100 Years of Bauhaus. This lively, wide-ranging documentary explores the history, present and future of the utopian design and architecture school and communal social movement around the world. Founded in 1919 by Walter Gropius, Bauhaus was supposed to unite sculpture, painting, design and architecture into a single combined constructive discipline. It is a synthesis of liberated imagination and stringent structure; cross-medial concepts that embellish and enrich our existence, illumination and clarity, order and playfulness. Bauhaus constituted one of the most significant contributions to everyday 20th-century culture and influential contemporary designs, but Bauhaus was never just an artistic experiment. Confronted with the social conditions of that particular time, as well as the experience of the First World War, the movement concerned itself with the political and social connotations of design from the very outset.
